Hooper happier behind the scenes

5 February 2013

Tom Hooper has said he prefers to be behind the camera, and not in the spotlight.

The Oscar-winning director of The King's Speech and Les Miserables is happy not being recognised in the street as the maker of such successful films.

Tom said: "The joy about being a director is that when your film comes out you possibly get stopped a little bit, but within three months you can go back to being completely anonymous. And then you wait for the next one to come out and you'll have a brief moment where people will recognise you. So it's kind of great because if you're a famous actor that process never stops."

He added: "I think I chose to be behind the camera because I didn't want that. I always wanted to be the person behind the scenes."

Les Miserables has racked up a Screen Actors Guild Award, three Golden Globe wins, nine Bafta nominations and eight Oscar nods. But Tom insists he isn't bothered about not receiving a Best Director Oscar nomination for the film.

He said: "I think it's important in awards season to just be incredibly grateful for any recognition that you've already got and to not expect anything beyond it. I was very fortunate two years ago with The King's Speech and this year it's a year of extraordinarily wonderful and beautiful films. So it's a very special year. So I'm just pleased to be part of it."
